Trindall a Shark until 2025

Talented Sharks half Braydon Trindall has signed a two-year contract extension with the Cronulla club.

Already contracted for 2023, the two-year extension will see Trindall remain at the Sharks through until at least the end of the 2025 season.

A member of the premiership winning Jersey Flegg team of 2018, as well as the halfback for the Newtown Jets in their dual state and national championship season of 2019, the 23-year-old Trindall has since gone on to play 38 NRL games.

“I’m very happy to be extending with the club for a further two seasons,” Trindall said. “I’m excited to keep learning and developing my game under Fitzy and the coaching staff.

“We are definitely heading in the right direction and I can’t wait to keep building as a club over the next few years.”

In announcing the contract extension, Sharks coach Craig Fitzgibbon while pleased with what Trindall had delivered so far at the NRL level, saw plenty of improvement and upside in his young half for the seasons ahead.

“We are pleased Braydon has chosen to stay and further develop his career with the Sharks,” the coach began. “His development in our squad has been steadily improving and we are very excited to see this continue.

“His team first attitude and cohesion with teammates he has spent a number of years with, is a crucial element moving forward,” Fitzgibbon said.

Trindall played 15 NRL games in 2022 and 33 matches over the past two seasons, in proving to be a quality half or five-eighth at the NRL level, as well as a dependable utility capable of playing a variety of roles when required.

He debuted in the NRL in a Sharks win over the Broncos in a round 12 match played at Suncorp Stadium in 2020.

Also a handy goal kicker, Trindall has kicked 42 goals to go along with five tries in his 38 NRL games.

Originally from Wee Waa in northern NSW, Trindall moved to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast to further his rugby league ambitions, representing Queensland in age group competitions before making the move south, his NRL journey originally taking him to Canberra, before Trindall moved to the Shire and to the Sharks in 2018 as an 18-year-old.

His signature adds to the Sharks depth, and while Trindall is comfortable and competent playing a bench utility role, he is set to compete with the likes of Nicho Hynes, Matt Moylan and Niwhai Puru for a place in the Sharks halves both in 2023 and in the years to come.
